THE BIRTH DECLARED a Christmas poem

The Birth Declared.

A verse from the heart of

Fr. Nigel W.D. Mumford+

Praise God,

From whom all blessings flow.

We are blessed to welcome the Christ child,

Here below.

The annual mystery renewed every year,

Welcomed again and again with such cheer.

The light coming from within

The stable, declares the new birth.

The angels sing, the bells ring,

The hope of Jesus has arrived.

The Old Testament wisdom,

Now satisfied.

The shepherds come to admire.

The kings come to worship and adore.

The Holy Family Radiant,

Let your healing begin.

Let us welcome the baby

With His healing grace.

There is so much more to come

This mystery has only just begun

Smile within

Let His graceful love fall in

To your heart.

To know the Savior born

To save us


Have a most blessed Christmas tide

As we navigate this COVID time.

Be well, do good works

And celebrate the welcome Birth.

The pure Love of God

Has arrived this Christmas tide.

You are loved.

By this very Child, beloved.

Amen, amen amen

I say again Amen.


Healing Grace and Peace be with you, Fr. Nigel+
